Food During Winter In San Jose

SOMETHING NEW TO ME... and I learn how to cook them from my daughter-in-law.... 

Now I am back home, I cannot remember the names of these dishes.... Before I forget what I have eaten, I have this need to put these pictures up in my blog before they go permanently deleted in my folder.  

Looking back now, we did not eat out much, since everything could be obtained in the supermarkets, it is best to cook these food by ourselves.  

We love seafood... 
A pot of just prawns, mussels and clams.... 
The sauce consists of some butter, cajun and chili flakes... 
That is all I remember... LOL... 
Don't be deceived by the small quantity....
The seafood was very filling!
Next comes Korean... pancake with seafood... 
I made a mess out of it... 
Doesn't taste like what we ate in the Korean restaurant... 
LOL... 
This is Kimchi soup.... 
Does not look appetizing now...
But on a cold winter night, a hot pot of soup was very satisfying... 
Another dish my daughter-in-law made...
Rice balls with pieces of spam and spices... 
Made some chicken can soup and a pot of Vietnamese noodles.... 
Fusion of the east and west....
Something I won't be able to get from my hometown for sure...
Now I am missing the winter!

  1. I love seafood too but they are not cheap here. When it is cold, everything tastes good. Here, you will be tempted to eat out instead of cooking all the time. Lol!

  2. Mussels, prawns and clam for the win! We love those so much, just throw into the steamboat, so nice to eat and the soup will turn out really sweet and delicious!

    I'm not into Korean but the ladies in the house are so into Korean dishes - in fact, I have a Korean dish in my blogpost tomorrow. My girl cooked it that day! Hop over, ya!!!

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
